General Electric to move up to 225 locomotive production jobs to Fort Worth from Erie, Pa.

The transition would begin next year between April and June and would involve a recall of Fort Worth employees laid off earlier this year. It would also eliminate locomotive production at the Erie plant, which employs more than 2,500 people, by the end of 2018. About 575 jobs in Erie would be affected.

The move was necessary to drive efficiency and preserve U.S. jobs, said Richard Simpson, GE Transportation's vice president of global supply chain.
"Our Fort Worth facility is very competitive, and as a result, this allows us to compete in a very tough space," Simpson said.
